Though Rockstar's announcement of Grand Theft Auto V is exciting news, it's just a tad less exciting for PC gamers who may not get a chance to play the latest sequel in the open world franchise. Rockstar's spurned PC players in the past, bringing a late and buggy port of L.A. Noire to PC and avoiding the platform altogether with Red Dead Redemption. It seemed like Rockstar was set to anger PC gamers yet again when its reveal of GTA V came with news that it would be only releasing for current generation consoles.
Recently, Rockstar Leeds put up a job listing (that has since been removed) that indicated there may be hope yet for GTA V to come to PC. "Rockstar Leeds are currently looking for a talented graphics programmer to help bring our latest titles to the PC platform," read the listing. "Working together with the other Rockstar studios, you will be responsible for maintaining the studio’s uncompromising quality bar, delivering the highest quality PC experience possible."
Rockstar bringing Red Dead Redemption to PC seems like a long shot, but the listing makes it appear that Grand Theft Auto V PC port may be a go.

Remind me again why there are mountains of forums, subreddits and other discussion mediums dedicated to the very topic of PC gaming and PC gaming hardware? 10/10 Troll Attempt, Would Read Again.
Honestly, I don't know how buggy it was at release, but now, patched up good, I haven't run into anything yet, and I dare to say it was worth to port it to PC. But was it worth ditching the RDR porting for L.A. Noire? I don't know, one should decide that for her- or himseIf.
Without those "millions" of different specs consoles wouldn't have anything to use. Consoles always rely on PC hardware to push forward for the new specs. Next gen consoles are basically low power HTPCs that when they come out will be vastly behind PC hardware, they are currently behind anyways.
I find it a bit surprising that they need to hire anyone to port to PC since Max Payne 3 was done very well for PC. In fact Max Payne 3 was probably one of the best 2012 PC games and really pushed PC hardware at the time (even a HD7970 at the time could not max it out as max needs 6GB of VRAM).
So the question is what happened to those people that worked on MP3 PC and why can they not do GTA V since its the same game engine?
